As it stands now, Black Panther is currently running roughshod over its competition at the box office, and it has officially crossed the coveted $1 billion mark for Disney and Marvel. Though they have been making movies for 10 years and have brought us down the rabbit hole to Infinity War, the films remain as popular and culturally relevant as ever. The success of Black Panther almost guarantees that Avengers: Infinity War is sure to dominate the box office and possibly become the biggest film of 2018. Follow that up with Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Marvel is once again poised to trounce its competition and remain at the top of the entertainment industry.
One huge reason for Marvel's success has been its stellar casting of its most popular characters, particularly the men who have starred in its hit films. The next wave of movies will see females coming to the forefront, but there is no denying that the men of the series have been instrumental in its success. These actors have come from different backgrounds and statuses to catapult themselves to the top of the heap thanks to their affiliation with Marvel.
